I know, I know…some of y’all don’t get it. But this brotha right here gives me FEVER!

My favorite British bruv Idris Elba snagged a spot in the June 2012 issue of British GQ and gives men a little advice on how to look good.

There are few things sexier than a man in a well-tailored suit, and Idris is serving up his best dapper don looks in the glossy while doling out advice on pocket squares, incorporating color, and picking the right cufflinks.

Elba’s rise from former Ford Motors assembly line worker to in-demand actor has been quite an inspiration. After quitting his job and pursuing his dreams, Big Driss took DJ gigs and theater parts just to make ends meet. It paid off. Hollywood has taken notice and Elba is on everyone’s hot list.

British GQ explains:

“Idris has tailor made his own success. Decorated with a Golden Globe for his lead Role in the Police drama Luther, he has since been Inundated with offers from Hollywood. Here, the Star of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus takes the lead for GQ.”

Elba’s sci-fi film Prometheus hits theaters later this year.

    Yeah I don’t get it. Maybe it is because he gives off this fatherly vibe to me. I don’t feel goosebumps, i feel like curtsying and calling him Mr. Elba when I see him.

    Kudos to the Art Director because this spread is fantastic! Of course Idris looks hot too :)

    This brother has swag to the max!!!!!!!!!!!! IT isn”t just about his looks, he exudes confidence and dignity and I don’t know what else, but he has it. Denzel has it too. But not too many other black actors.
